I knew about this documentary ages ago, but never found the moment to watch it. It was released in 1992, and the name Baraka has a religious meaning in it. I enjoyed it a lot. You’ll need to be in a contemplative mood for really finding the beauty of this, if not, it can just be a boring sequence of videos. It shows views of different places in the world, life styles and cultures. You might even find some interesting meanings, maybe very personal ones, depending on your mood while watching the film. Photography is great. The use of time-lapse photography, now so fashionable, is amazing. And the music fits perfectly. Now I need to watch the second part, called Samsara. Good weekend!
